RR - I had a big response typed up but wasn't helpful. More a comentary on what is wrong with apple and cloud computing. Good luck solving your problem. Am sure you new mini ipad looks lovely.
Fab afternoon at the new athletics stadium in Glasgow. Who would have guessed that watching lots of fit young men in lycra running, jumping and hurdling would be such fun... * There were lots of girlies, too..* Actually, seeing some real sprinting is pretty amazing. Fashionwise, gold/silver soles on yer trainers is the way to go...always supposing you lift your feet high enough for anyone to see the underside of the shoes..
The new velodrome is awesome and , by peering through the glass on the locked doors, I watched some cyclists doing that wall-of-death thing...
And a big thank you to DLR who let me give away his tickets..* He's snowed in and had to cancel a planned trip way up here. Or else he's just can't face the Eggy/ATM combo on a LSR..* The lucky recipients were thrilled, if slightly scared, at the random gift bestowed by a ,rather aged, fairy-godmother. And they say Yorkshiremen are....

DV - bit surprised to see my pad in One Hyde Park on that list...
well.. quite... and a few of your summer houses too...
I just tried to like your post TJB, obviously spending far too much time on Faceache!!!
Well done anyway, having a friend to run with must make some difference. If only on the friend and run front here!!!
Another 5 mile brisk walk with my best friend this morning. Very Very cold and wet but nice and peaceful.
Jimbob - you're a machine dude!
17 and a half for me, the majority with Eggy for company. Couldn't face the final 6, even with the promise of seeing Loch Lomond..We had hail, rain, sun and sleet. As you say, TJB, these longer runs are more fun with company.
Fleecy tights are a good buy and it IS possible to run and eat jaffa cakes at the same time..
DV, we all live in a different world.Depends on your persepective.....* In gutter but looking at the stars....*
I must say I'm looking forward to my A&E/ED placement but as the only placement we have this year where we're timetabled for weekends my heart sunk when I saw it was over Paris weekend! I'm relieved now that it's sorted (and planes booked!).
Looks like some good running has been had by all. Did my long run on the treadmill yesterday (cut short once more- 13 miles on the plan but at mile 9 I had some plantar fasciitis type pain so switched to the cross trainer for 10 mins before doing another 4 miles on the treadmill). There's been a big thaw today though so I'm looking forward to getting back out on the road. (Although not looking forward to Sheffield's hills..)
RR- I've had problems with icloud too and my way of fixing it involved lots of changing various settings and turning off and on so I have no idea what it was that actually worked!
DV- nice link, those places are just crazy..
Eggy and ATM, wish I had been with you guys - 14 and promise of cake would be my idea of motivation
Well I've got a lot of catch up reading to do ... finally managed to get internet sorted in the mountains - loving the scenery... it's cold and snowy and struggling to run on it but breathtaking once I get out there. Have managed to find a kettlebell trainer and doing some cardio training once a week too and hoping that will keep me going until the ice melts a little - it's not great for training in but I suppose it's a learning curve and hopefully Paris will feel relatively flat compared to the trails here!
wi - love it, another Vibram runner!
Had a good 14 miles today on a new route. When the largest feature on the map is a huge lake, yet they call the suburb "Berkley HILLS" I guess I should have been forewarned.
Well, for the first time I have found a shoe that comes closest to my Vibrams. Lightweight, zero drop but better protection from the Paris cobbles. Paris was the only place I've had pain from the road surface - no other marathon or local run. So far, so good - perhaps 3xweek vibrams and 2x week incl LSR with the Mizuno Evo Levitas?
Eggy - Mrs D informed me today she would rather stay in Montmarte than near the Arch. I am leaning towarda agreeing. How much hassle is it getting to and from the marathon? And any suggestions of a place to stay - she's not fancy but she does want something "nice"!
MM - Good luck with the move, and new job!! And thank u.
RR/Emmy - Hope travels and work go well. Maybe you'll get some nice weather thrown in to!
sounds bloody awful out there today. X training this morning. All ok just now, but I won't be after my root canal treatment later on. At least I have now gotten a good dentist instead of the butcher I had before!!
13 miles completed Saturday morning in the snow and ice. Wasn't too bad. Trotted around in 2 hours 5 minutes.
15 miles this weekend. It will be the longest I've run.
MM - Good luck with the move this week. Hopefully it's not too stressful.
James - Good going. It's good to start and build up those long runs.
